What you get
In today’s world, it seems like we’re moving faster than ever, making new discoveries, and learning new things every day. Whether it be technological, medical or simply following one’s dreams, there is much more distance between families today than just a few generations ago. Today, we see more and more people taking risks and leaving home at a young age to make it in the world. We are seeing more and more opportunities that take our young generation to new places and experiences often times away from their own families.
With all the change and a new higher-speed lifestyle, we are getting used to living in this new world. How do families feel closer than ever despite our ever-changing world? The answer is simple and it’s something we didn’t have 50 years ago – technology!
Spokesman.com reports that over 25% of families feel closer thanks to technology. With social media, messaging apps, and a myriad of opportunities with smartphones, there is no limit to how we can communicate. Thanks to advancements in technology, we can now talk to people all over the word instantly, and we don’t have to miss special moments ever again.
Do you have a kid in college? Facetime them! Are you feeling homesick? Call mom and dad instantly! Want to talk to your cousin in the military overseas? Shoot them a text! There’s almost no limit to what you can do and achieve through technology. Less than 60 years ago, if you wanted to talk to a friend in another part of the world, you paid an enormous fee to speak long distance. If you were homesick, you would have to settle for a postcard once a week. When you felt lonely, you had to wait to speak to a loved one and just had to deal with it. Now friends, family and loved ones are only a call, text or facetime away.
The same study on Spokesman.com also shows that 94% of adults in a typical household have some type of internet service. This tells us that 94% of the world is accessible by a simple smartphone. For every home that has at least one adult with some form of smart device, there are also tweens and teens with smart devices in that household. In fact, about 84% of kids between the ages of 7 and 17 have access to the internet or a mobile device.
Now that we’re closer than ever to the world around us, we can use technology for good and stay connected. Technology can bring us one step closer to world peace. It is up to us on how we use that technology.
